“I am grateful to CHLI’s Alumni Association for offering this scholarship in Wendy’s name and for CHLI investing in my professional growth since Spring 2014”

ALEJANDRO ALBA

“A CHLI intern’s experience, connections, and network should provide lifelong value. Establishing a permanent scholarship to help with educational expenses serves our mission to empower alumni across the country and honors the memory of one of our own. In the coming years, we’re looking forward to growing this work and other programs to continue to advance the Hispanic community’s diversity of thought.”

KEITH FERNANDEZ
